International, Study Abroad, Co-Ops and Student Exchange Programs
All Honors students are encouraged to actively seek opportunities for study abroad, internships, Co-Ops and student exchange experiences. It is recommended that these experiences be explored during the sophomore and junior years. Those students seeking more than one experience during their matriculation at Claflin must seek the direct approval of the Honors Director and Provost before making application.
Students participating in study abroad, internships, Co-Ops and student exchange programs must make arrangements with the Honors Director for course substitutions or waivers of Honors Leadership Seminars the semester prior to departure.
Additionally, students are strongly encouraged to apply for the Fulbright, Rhodes, Luard, Woodrow Wilson, Truman, Goldwater, Udall, Emerging Leaders, Leadership Alliance, and other prestigious scholarships and opportunities. Other experiences to consider are the Semester in Washington Program, the United Nations and other international agencies.
Information and preparation for these prestigious competitions may be obtained in the following offices:

Students should also meet with their school deans, department chairs and advisors for available opportunities.
